Aidan is the president of Short Circuit Media. He’s scribbled all sorts of content for well over 2 decades. Starting off as an entertainment writer, he jumped into the corporate world in communications roles before taking on more senior marketing responsibilities within the financial services industry.
As boredom set in, he took a pay cut to get some more practical digital marketing experience at an agency in Toronto. It wasn’t long before he took over as the Marketing Director for a professional speaker. Now Aidan works with multiple speakers, trainers and consultants to develop and implement marketing strategies to make their businesses work more smoothly.
People Like Us!
I worked with Aidan to streamline my social media presence on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter. Aidan connected everything so that I was able to post once to my blog, or YouTube account and have that posting or video automatically appear across various social media sites. Aidan’s “post once, appear everywhere” approach to content saves time and duplication of effort. I recommend Aidan to any business that is struggling to find value in social media.

Aidan revamped my website, set up SEO, and connected all social media tools. My traffic has skyrocketed. He is a marketing strategist with tactical know-how. Pleasant to work with and super responsive. I would recommend him to anyone that wants to leverage the web to boost their visibility.
Aidan is a pleasure to work with. He works fast, he stays on schedule and keeps you informed every step of the way. I find him very responsive (which I love), very easy to work with and his work is good! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Aidan if you need help getting your website to where it should be.
Rhonda Scharf, CSP
Produced my monthly newsletter, converted our newsletters to Aweber’s delivery service, digitized my books, set up book distribution on e-book sites like Amazon, launched two new books, marketed public workshops, produced audio and videos, wrote and distributed press releases, prepared and sent e-mail marketing blasts, and a host of other related work. All this work has taken us to a new level and Aidan has developed a deep expertise around online marketing in the speaking, consulting, and training business.
Short Circuit Media rebuilt our recruiting site using a content management system that made our site easier to manage and update as well as make it more visible to search engines. Aidan also made sure that it was properly integrated into Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, so that visitors share our content, and subscribe to our job feed and have new postings “pushed” to their social media accounts.
